Yes, the colors are pretty and I like winter clothes... boots and sweaters are fun, but if I could live on a sunny island year-round that would suit me fine!
But, at least I live where the winters are somewhat mild and I am grateful for that. Today, to combat the gloom, I am working on some colorful, fun art projects and making tortilla soup.
It's all good...

My friend Tina is a dear girl, a sweet mom and grandma, a terrific artist and one of the organizers of the fabulous Paper Cowgirl Altered Art Retreat. Tina has such a kind and generous soul. To know her is to love her!
This week Tina has been diagnosed with cancer. This is heartbreaking news, but Tina is one tough cowgirl! Across blogland prayers are being offered and support systems being formed to help Tina and her sweet family through this trying time. Jan of The Polka Dot Barn http://polkadotbarn.blogspot.com/ is organizing a fabulous gift for Tina. If you want to check it out and participate just pop over to her blog for the details.
You can also leave an encouraging comment for Tina here... http://tina-wright.blogspot.com/
If you are a praying person, please keep Tina and her family in your prayers.
take care~Dale xoxo

Even the Beloved Virgin could not resist Mojo's charms. He time traveled to the ancient Holy Land to receive Her blessing... and a sacred wafer.
Oh that bird! He is a rascal. as I write, he peers down at me with his wee round eyes. I am smitten!
Hooray, for the long weekend! No real plans, but certainly we'll be poolside at some point.
Hope your Labor Day is restful and fun!~

My parrot, Mojo, is a time traveler. Here he is with his beloved Marie Antoinette. This lovely painting hangs in Versailles, where Mojo often visted to the delight of the young Queen.
Yes, I love my bird. He is a constant source of amusement! You'd love him, too... I promise! He is pretty irresistible!
We are having a spate of incredibly beautiful weather here in north Texas. It is quite inspiring. Mostly it inspires me to lay around by the pool... ;)
